The free game for April on PlayStation Plus - Mad Max.  Probably not an A+ title - but hey, it’s free!  See you on the road!

It’s a great game, especially for free! Very much like an open world version of the Batman Arkham series or the Shadows of Mordor games. It looks beautiful at times too.

Yeah that Mad Max game was great fun, very cool. I got pretty burnt out on it towards the end, I may have been trying to do way too much in terms of side objectives and stuff which meant the game eventually outstayed its welcome, but that's probably more a problem with my own gaming habits than the game itself! Definitely a bargain at £free.

Going into the storms on Mad Max was so cool!! Good game but those storms in particular are one of my favourite gaming moments of last year (I finally got round to it on Game Pass).

Played through a PC puzzler called Gunpoint this week. A neat set of mechanics (you have to infiltrate buildings to steal data or items, with your main ability being to rewire the building's systems - hooking a motion sensor to a different door or hacking a lightswitch to call a lift etc. - and then tricking the security guards into opening up the paths you need). It's really intuitive and the levels that are all pretty easy to solve if you just want to get the data and get out again, but because there are bonus stipulations on the missions (no witnesses, hack bonus laptops etc.) it can be as tricky as you want it to be really. The writing is really amusing and cleverly the dialogue options are varied in a way that lets you dictate the tone of the game, it can be gritty or it can be a laugh, and the story works both ways quite happily.

Short too, at maybe three hours, which made it the ideal lunch break game.

Not sure about the UK, but Rogue Trooper Redux for the PS4 is currently on special in the Playstation Store for about $12.00 Australian Dollars (about 7 pounds?) - not a bad price!

Also - I downloaded the PS4 vanilla version of Elite Dangerous for the same price (about $12.00AUD).  Question - I haven't played this kind of game before - is it reasonably easy to get into (possibly with a baby-steps tutorial of some kind?) - or does it throw you into the deep end straight away?

Bearing in mind, I didn't play the original back in the good ol' days! :)

You should buy any game you can get in Australia, as I understand it might be banned at any moment in case it upsets the sensibilities of people who have never and will never play a videogame.

I'm enjoying Mad Max.Scratches the open world itch with some nice car battles thrown in. Not massively original but well executed

Its on sale, but it's £13.99. Not on Xbox though. Is it just me or do more games go on sale more frequently on the PlayStation Store? Sometimes it seems like MS's sales are perhaps overly curated or something.

Last game played (for the past 5 weeks or so) is Stardew Valley.
It has utterly, utterly charmed me, but I think I'm reaching the point where it's time to say adieu.

I know that Stardew Valley was inspired by the Harvest Moon games, but I have never played them, despite the proliferation of the series.

I'm looking for some recommendations regarding Harvest Moon- whats the best version out there, closest in style to Stardew Valley?
Ideally on the Wii U or 3DS Virtual Console.
